PAIN AFTER BACK SURGERY: CHIROPRACTIC REHAB AND CARE HELP

Research reports that those who undergo rehabilitation after back disc surgery experience better treatment outcomes in the year following the back surgery. They return to work. (1) Some back surgery patients don’t undergo rehabilitation by choice or by not being told to do so. For those who have continued pain after back surgery (also known as “failed back surgical syndrome”), Richmond chiropractic Cox Technic spinal manipulation care may help relieve the pain without further surgery. A study of 69 post-surgical continued pain patients seeking care from a chiropractor using Cox Technic documents that 81% of these patients achieved more than 50% pain relief in 11 visits over a 49-day period of active care. (2) That can be sufficient relief to return these patients to enjoy their lives again! If you, a loved one or a friend didn’t do any rehab work after back surgery and/or are experiencing back pain post-back surgery, Johnson Chiropractic can help with gentle, research-documented, Richmond chiropractic care and treatment.

TIP OF THE MONTH: Exercise and Nutrition for Your Discs

Exercise is beneficial for the nutrition of your spinal discs! The discs are comprised of glycosaminoglycans which are comprised of chondroitin sulfate, dermatan sulfate, glucosamine sulfate. Researchers explain that physical exercise does not lessen glycosaminoglycans; exercise enhances their concentration even in overtraining situations. (3) Plus doing some muscle strengthening activities twice a week lowers your chances of low back pain. (4) Ask Johnson Chiropractic about chondroitin sulfate supplementation and exercise as additions to your Richmond chiropractic treatment plan for your disc’s health and healing!
